I am updating our method for merging parcel boundaries from our SDE database with data copied from the appraiser's database. Rather than a join/export process, I've set up a SQL view that joins the parcel data to a table with a copy of the appraiser's data. The join works, but the resulting feature class is converting true curves to straight lines. Here's a screenshot to illustrate what I'm seeing. The tan polygon is the original parcel feature class and the heavier black line shows the geometry of the same parcel in the SQL view:


Why would the SQL view convert the true curve to a series of straight lines?
